DMX can run, but he can't hide from trouble. Especially if he walks right up to it and demands it kick his butt.

The rapper, who's currently facing animal-cruelty charges in Arizona, was arrested Friday afternoon in Miami after he allegedly tried to buy drugs from an undercover cop.

According to the police report obtained by the Miami Herald, DMX approached the officer and asked for ''30 powder and 15 weed," aka $30 worth of cocaine and $15 of marijuana.

The officer slapped the cuffs on the Cradle 2 the Grave star, whose real name is Earl Simmons, after he handed him $45.

Authorities said that they have not released the exact location where the bust took place because undercover officers are still operating in the area.

As of Friday evening, DMX was cooling his heels in Miami-Dade County jail.

And it turns out that this was his second bust of the week. Miami police also nabbed him Monday for driving with a suspended license. He was taken into custody at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and released a few hours later after posting $500 bail.

Back in Arizona, the beleaguered MC has pleaded not guilty to 11 counts of animal cruelty and drug possession stemming from two raids at his Phoenix-area home in which SWAT teams found marijuana and a number of pit bull puppies that required immediate veterinary care for malnutrition and dehydration.
